Travelling to and from MLC
Our campus is located in the heart of the vibrant Perth suburb of Claremont. Bordered by Christ Church Grammar School and the Swan River, we are on the corner of Stirling Highway and Corry Lynn Road.
There are a numerous options to explore when planning your journey to School, however, we encourage our girls to walk, cycle or take public transport, where appropriate.
There are two major entry points to the College for parents dropping off their children.
Parents of all students are encouraged to enter the College from Stirling Highway to drop their children in the carpark adjacent to Hadley Hall. There is also a larger car park in front of the Meredith Taylor Health and Sports Centre which can be utilised.
The second access point is via Corry Lynn Road which is available as a drop off or pick up point for students from Years 5–12. It is likely that students finishing classes at 3.30pm will not arrive at Corry Lynn Road for pickup until around 3.40pm. It is illegal to park along the street and verges during peak times on Corry Lynn Road and the surrounding streets, except in marked bays.
There is limited parking available in all areas of the College so car-pooling is encouraged whenever possible.
A MLC customised version of the Perth Transit Authority's Student SmartRider is issued to each student.
These are also used as a College Library card and a My Student Account card, as well as a student concession card.
Three MLC/Christ Church Grammar School Community Buses will pick up and drop off students from the City Beach, Floreat, Nedlands, Shenton Park and Subiaco areas as well as the southern suburbs. In Term 3 there will be an additional bus route to Karrinyup.
City Beach/Floreat Shuttle
The City Beach/Floreat shuttle is a Buswest bus with a MLC/Christ Church Grammar School sign in the window. The first pick up will begin on The Boulevard in City Beach followed by an additional stop at the bus stop on Howtree Place outside Floreat Forum. This bus will drop students directly outside MLC, on the College side of the road. After school, the bus will pick students up from Stirling Highway, opposite MLC, at 3.45pm. Students will be required to walk across the overpass to reach the bus stop.
At the beginning of Term 3 this route will change to be a dedicated Floreat Shuttle. The City Beach stop will be incorporated in the Karrinyup route.

Transperth is the government provider of bus services in the metropolitan area. It provides special school bus services throughout the WA Education Department school terms to and from our campus. These terms may differ slightly from the MLC school term.
As we are conveniently located on Stirling Highway, numerous public bus services also stop outside of the campus.
Special buses link with some train services, running between Claremont Railway Station and the College on school days.
